Coffee Swirl Yogurt Bread



One of my favorite family traditions is Christmas morning while unwrapping gifts, my mum would always have a beautiful array of breads, coffee cake, cookies and more. Despite the fact that my brother and I are no longer little, we still enjoy past traditions. We both now bring goodies to add to our Christmas morning breakfast and this year I will be sharing my coffee swirl yogurt bread. If you know me, you know that I absolutely HATE the taste and smell of coffee. However, this bread does not smell or taste anything like coffee - not to mention it's super addicting.
